Publisher's Description

Looks can be deceiving.

Katherine Clarkson has the perfect life. Married to Brad, a loving and handsome husband, respected in their church and the community. Two grown daughters on the verge of starting families of their own. A thriving ministry. Good friends. A comfortable life.

She has it all--until the day a reporter appears with shocking allegations. Splashed across the local news are accusations of Brad's financial impropriety at his foundation and worse, an affair with a former employee. Without warning, Katherine's marriage is shattered and her family torn apart. The reassuring words she's spoken to many brokenhearted women over the years offer little comfort now.

Her world spinning, Katherine wonders if she can find the truth in the chaos that consumes her. How can she survive the loss of what she thought was the perfect life?

"Robin Lee Hatcher is one of my favorite authors.”        –– Francine Rivers, New York Times bestselling author of Redeeming Love

Publisher's Weekly

Meet Katherine Clarkson, heroine of Christy Award-winning novelist Hatcher’s latest enjoyable, if not literarily distinguished, domestic tale. Katherine seems to have, as the title suggests, the perfect life—her two grown daughters are both pregnant, and her devoted and handsome husband Brad has just been named Humanitarian of the Year for his work at In Step, a ministry that rehabilitates houses for low-income people. Then disaster strikes—a beautiful young woman who once worked for Brad publicly accuses him of mishandling the ministry’s finances, and of having an affair with her. When Brad denies both accusations, Katherine struggles with whether to believe him. She wrestles, too, with the fact that her church community largely abandons her in the wake of the scandal. Meanwhile, Katherine’s two daughters clash over how to respond to their parents’ crisis. Hatcher (Whispers from Yesterday) is a dab hand with dialogue, which is one reason her characters are so well drawn: readers will feel empathy with all members of the family. Hatcher also gets kudos for creating, in Katherine’s best friend, a sympathetic non-Christian character, something all too rare in faith fiction. This will be a surefire hit with Hatcher’s many fans.

    The Perfect Life is a wonderful book, and every Christian woman should read it. I found it so inspirational that I could not put it down. Also, I was up all night searching my heart. I look forward to reading more of Robin's books.

    Robin Lee Hatcher has done an amazing job engaging her readers into the life of this family. We read each page waiting with baited breath to see the decisions that will be made, and the path each character will choose. This book would make a great summer book discussion group!

    The lives of a middle-aged couple, Katherine and Brad, are suddenly thrown into chaos after an accusation is made by one of Brad's former employees. Reading this book reminds the reader that we need to always put our trust in God, no matter what the circumstance. Not one of us is perfect and we all have challenges to confront and resolve. This book also reminds us to be compassionate with people who are in the midst of a difficult situation.

    This is an extremely well written and thought inducing book. It draws on our faith and love of God to envision our own life choices as we follow this family in crisis. It lets loose our emotions and expectations of our past and future. When you finish, you will want to read it again!
